Lesson 4.7  Scientific Notation
 Objective: Write numbers using scientific notation
 Vocabulary:
 scientific notation (p. 204)
 Essential Question: How do I write numbers using scientific notation?
 Guided Practice Problem
 write 3.2×10^{7} in standard form = 32,000,000
 Significant figures
 just like a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so is adding measurements. The least significant measurement will control the significant figures. For example, I have a 12“ ruler and my pacing (2 steps equals 5 feet). So I'm trying to measure the length of a football field by pacing. I pace it to be 295 feet and then just at the end, I use the ruler to measure the remaining distance from my foot to the endzone and its 23/8 inches (0.198 feet). Adding this gives me 295.198 feet but this implies my precision of measurement is to the thousandsth place when in reality by precision is to the nearest 5 feet.
